Just joined this forum! Looking to getting into running to suplement my gym sessions, used to gym 3 times a week but I've recently changed jobs which means I can probably only gym once a week.
Quick background...I was a bit of bloater, weighing in at around 25st! Two years ago I had an epiphany (by way of a rude, loud child on a bus commenting on my size) which made me realize I had to do something...two years on I am now down to around 15st7lbs!
This was mostly achieved by cutting out rubbish from my diet...dropping the fizzy drinks, sweats, chocolate, takeaways, micromeals etc and replacing them with fruit, veg, home-prepared meals and also choosing low-fat/sugar alternatives when I do eat something slightly naughty.
I also joined a gym a year ago and was doing 3x1 hour sessions per week, a mix of mostly cardio with some weight training. As I say though, the gym has had to fall by the wayside!
So yeah anyway...hi to all! I'm off out for my first jog/walk session!
